Hyderabad, Aug.13: In a sensational incident, some unidentified miscreants fired six rounds at Congress leader Rachakonda Yadagiri Goud in Old Bowenpally area in Secunderabad on Saturday. One cartridge pierced into the lower part of his body.

According to the information, some bike-borne assailants suddenly opened fire on Yadagiri while he was entering his house at Old Bowenpally and fled leaving the gun behind. The Congress leaders fell to the ground. The bleeding victim was rushed to a nearby hospital. Police suspect that land disputes could be the reason for the attack.

After a while, Yadagiri came to the police station with bullet injuries to lodge a complaint. Confirming the firing, Commissioner of Police Mahendar Reddy said there was some scuffle before the shooting. The police are also probing from various angles, including personal grudge. They are also looking into whether Saturday’s attack has anything to do with the recent shootout at Alwal in the city.

Sources in the police suspect that one Dakkali Babu of Alwal, a rowdy-sheet, may be behind the attack on Yadagiri. Police visited the spot and collected CCTV Camera Footage.
